(February 2019 - March 2022)
Donor: We-Fi - IsDB
BRAVE WOMEN was designed to scale up the success of the first two phases of the BRAVE project and the data collected which showed that women businesses were growing and fared the best in the first two phases. The main aim of the project is to enhance the resilience of Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) owned/managed by women in fragile context as potential engines for innovation, employment, and improved quality of life. The program focuses on building women skill, business resilience and supporting their business recovery and growth by providing matching grants and advisory services. This encourages and increases women MSMEs access to finance to sustain and create thousands of jobs even in fragile and conflict settings such as Yemen.
